Private property with a public access easement and conservation easement allowing climbing held by the Access Fund. Critical to see current requirements and restrictions. MORE INFO >>>


Thin climbing up the column leads to an ok rest below the first roof. Sequential moves to the left lead over the roof to a good series of jugs.

Romp up jugs for a few clips to the awkward sit down rest that gives this route its name.

From here the holds deteriorate and you are faced with a short boulder problem culminating at a good sidepull. Catch your breath and launch into an underclings that sets you up for the crux.

Fire deep for a jug, or use some kneebar trickery and hold on until the anchor. The reaches are long but the difficulty eases in a few moves.

Y0u can keep going into the extension aka The Governor if you want more climbing.


Electric Chair is in the middle of the main wall just to the right of the trees. It is located between Misdemeanor and Cell Block Six.


All draws are fixed. 9ish bolts total
